  statue of Fernando Pessoa
by acemj

Poets and artists have been coming here for years and the statue that sits out front is a testament to this link to the artistic community. The statue is of Fernando Pessoa, a poet who was a frequent visitor of Brasileira in his day. I stopped in here a couple times for uma bica (a small, strong coffee like an espresso) and a couple different kinds of pastries. It's tough to get a table in this popular and crowded place, so just do like the locals do and stand at the bar.
